Minister of Justice Luo Ying-shay (羅瑩雪) yesterday said there is a schedule
for executions and there would be no rush to carry them out on the nation’s 42 death-row inmates.
“We do not have a timetable for carrying out capital punishment,” Luo said at a meeting with top judiciary officials to discuss the cases.
“The review process is ongoing for these cases,” Luo said at a press briefing after the event. “They will undergo review on a case-by-case basis. We have proceeded in a prudent manner and must ensure there has been no miscarriage of justice before going on to the next step.”
The three vice ministers of justice along with the head of the Supreme Prosecutors’ Office attended the meeting. [FULL STORY]
